Chrisian Leaders, Some killed, others spared.








Boko Haram militants attacked the village of Bargaram, Cameroon, on July 24, killing dozens, including Pastor Jean Marcel Kesvere. The militants kidnapped pastor Kesvere during the raid, and authorities discovered his body four days later in a rural area a few miles from the village. The pastor is survived by his wife and eight children. Boko Haram, an Islamic militant group, has displaced thousands of Nigerian Christians, many of whom have fled to refugee camps in nearby Cameroon.


"Ranjay" used to be a leader with a radical Hindu group, but is now an evangelist and shares the Gospel with many throughout India. Now RSS leaders in India want to see all Christians convert back to Hinduism or leave the country.
 
"Ranjay" was once an area leader for the Shiv Sena, a radical political group in India which, like the Hindu nationalist RSS group, seeks to establish India as an entirely Hindu country in which no other religious or political organization is welcome. Now, after receiving a New Testament, he is a dedicated follower and an evangelist who has used his own money to distribute 3,000 Gospel tracts and 1,700 New Testaments. He and other Christian leaders may face persecution in the months to come from members of the RSS. Speaking at an event on Aug. 10, RSS leader Mohan Bhagwat said, "The cultural identity of all Indians is Hindutva," a fundamentalist Hindu ideology that views all other religions as invalid. Two days later, an RSS coordinator in Uttar Pradesh told a local news agency that the group plans to use Dec. 25 to convert Christians to Hinduism and believes that the area will be entirely free of Christians and other minority religious groups within two to three years.
